Outdoor Seating and Accessories for Tourism and Hospitality Business Scheme

Failte Ireland has launched this scheme to provide a level of financial support to tourism and hospitality businesses to purchase or upgrade equipment to provide additional outdoor seating, and therefore increase their outdoor dining capacity for the summer of 2021. This scheme has now been extended to non dining businesses i.e. pubs and they are eligible to apply for this scheme from Monday 14th June. This scheme will financially assist and support independent tourism and hospitality business owners to create outdoor dining/non dining experiences in a regulated and accessible manner. Funding under the scheme is only available to existing businesses.

The Outdoor Seating and Accessories for Tourism & Hospitality Business Scheme will be administered through Westmeath County Council.
